Our Practice Areas
Most parents would agree that just getting a child through school these days is a far cry from what it was when they went to school. It seemed so much simpler then, before school districts were gargantuan and schools were strapped for cash.
Our schools have so many problems to deal with on a daily basis that the individual child — especially one who may have some special needs — may easily fall through the cracks. While parents generally try their best on their children’s behalf, sometimes they hit an administrative brick wall and still their children’s needs are not being met. That’s where the attorneys and staff at Vanaman German LLP come in. The attorneys of Vanaman German LLP are experts who, with the excellent support of their staff, comprise the team that will help you with any problems you may have with any of these issues.
We offer the full range of special education representation, from IEP advocacy to federal court litigation. Our experience in the field means that we not only know the law, but can understand diagnoses and psychological assessments to ensure that each student is provided with an education truly tailored to meet their individual needs.
The appeal of a Regional Center’s decision is called a “fair hearing,” and we aim to make sure that’s exactly what you get. Whether you’re contesting an eligibility determination, advocating for an increase in respite care, or fighting for the vendor that best suits your loved one, let Vanaman German LLP stand for your rights.
Your child doesn’t stop being your child when they reach 18, especially if he or she has a disability that impairs their ability to make the important decisions that adults must face on a daily basis. Our attorneys work with you to design limited conservatorships that strike the right balance between allowing you to protect your young adult’s rights while still fostering independence in daily living.
Our estate planning division helps you manage the uncertainty of long-term fiscal planning for your relative with a disability. We use a variety of legal instruments, such as special needs trusts, in order to make sure that you have a plan in place that is custom made to meet your individual needs, and those of your loved one.
